Flagrantly lying to our faces – LibLabCon find a magical money-tree

Three weeks from the election, our two-faced political leaders are treating voters with contempt

Worse still, while attacking the Labour Party for fiscal recklessness and unfunded spending pledges, this new NHS commitment made by Osborne is completely unfunded. Over the last 48 hours Tory MPs have gone on the airwaves stonewalling questions about how they are going to fund big election handouts. After everything they have told us about how Labour can’t be trusted with the economy, how dare they?

When the main two parties treat voters so appallingly, flagrantly lying to their faces, telling one half of the country one thing and the rest another, it is no wonder no party is close to winning a majority. We live in an age where parties devoid of principle tell people what they think they want to hear and hope they will get away with it. The problem for them is they won’t get away with it. The mess that follows whoever ends up in Number 10 after May 7th is no less than these sorry parties deserve.

So with three weeks till voting day we see that labour and conservative poll positions are not changing.  They’re both in the low 30s percents.  Recently all the parties seem to have found veritable, verdant, forests of money trees ready for plucking.

Labour (lefty spendaholics) are promising a spendathon ‘for investment purposes’ whilst balancing the (rest of the) budget by 2020.  (See 4:19 for the scale of the spending lies.  This interviewer is the hardest in the UK (Andrew Neil).  He cannot get any party to talk sense.)

And as Chuka ‘chuck us ya money’ Umunna says, their competition (the Conservatives) are little better.  Both parties have declared that balancing the budget is no longer a problem.  The lefty howling over ‘austerity’ has worked…thing is there has been no ‘austerity’.  The titanic deficit has been halved (but only because the economy has grown – QE has inflated an economic bubble).

To go back to the Breitbart quote; We live in an age where parties devoid of principle tell people what they think they want to hear and hope they will get away with it. The problem for them is they won’t get away with it.

The voters know it.  All the parties are making wild spending pledges in the sure and certain knowledge that the election will result in a coalition.  They will then blame the fact that their spending pledges aren’t fulfilled on their coalition partners.  Cameron will walk away from the pledge of a (non-binding) referendum over membership of the EU.  One that he has no desire to fulfill anyway, by blaming it on the europhile-as-a-mofo LibDems (the third main party currently experiencing the onset on rigor mortise).

People don’t believe any of the parties offer the prospect of competent management.

Still, could be worse…

What difference could that make?

    Miliband’s pledge: ‘I will really try not to completely f**k Britain’

    ED Miliband has pledged that a Labour government will try really hard not to fuck everything up.

    Writing in the Daily Mirror, the Labour leader insisted he would make not fucking the country into the middle of next week his top priority as prime minster.

    He said: “I don’t actively hate Britain and I honestly don’t want to be shit at this. If you vote Labour I will get up every day and try my best not to be an utter fucking disaster.”

    Miliband’s pledge includes:

    Really, really wanting the economy to grow;

    If the economy doesn’t grow, trying as hard as he can to not just go out and borrow hundreds of billions of pounds;

    Trying his level best to not do a sordid deal with a large Scottish party that actively wants to make him prime minister;

    Trying quite hard not to ban a load of everyday things that most people are perfectly okay with;

    Saving the really large-scale dicking about for the education system and the NHS.

    He added: “If you want a prime minster who probably won’t fuck your life up from the very moment he takes charge then I’m probably the man for the job.”

    It’s not even really a joke…

    “end the practice of grouse shooting”
    “ensure UK taxpayers’ money is not used for bullfighting”

    “make equality and diversity lessons mandatory in all schools”
    “progressively introduce anonymised CVs”
    “strengthen Travellers’ rights”
    “cancelling student debt”
    “revive the role of trade unions”
    “phase in a 35 hours week”
    “work for the abolition of the City of London Corporation”
    “introduce a wealth tax of 2% on the top 1%”
    “raise the additional top rate of income tax to 60%”
    “increase corporation tax from 20% to 30%”
    “introduce new taxes on the use of water”
    “ensure that no company owns more than 20% of a media market”
    “state funding of political parties”
    “pursue a policy of defensive defence, which threatens no one”

  5. Throwing goodies at voters before election is such an old trick; often happens at this side of the world too. To be fair though, in Singapore the govt that does it is supposedly conservative, so it’s not confined to leftists. It’s kinda depressing how predictable and uncreative humans in general are, can’t they at least come up with new tricks?

    “Labour (lefty spendaholics) are promising a spendathon ‘for investment purposes’ “. Hah they’re telling the truth; it’s an investment for their re-election campaign.

    She is perfectly capable of alienating the majority of voters all by herself.

    This made me feel better. Maybe, it needs to be passed around in Old Blighty so that people will have a basis for comparison.

    The women are discriminated against in STEM bullshit:


    “National hiring audits, some dating back to the 1980s, reveal that female scientists have had a significantly higher chance of being interviewed and hired than men.”

    “We ran five national experiments with these otherwise-identical female and male candidates, systematically varying their personal attributes and lifestyles in a counterbalanced design. Every time we sent a given slate of candidates to a male faculty member, we sent the same slate with sexes reversed to another male faculty member, as well as sending both slates to two female faculty members. Then we compared the faculty members’ rankings to see how hirable each candidate was, overall.
    What we found shocked us. Women had an overall 2-to-1 advantage in being ranked first for the job in all fields studied. This preference for women was expressed equally by male and female faculty members, with the single exception of male economists, who were gender neutral in their preferences”

    I’ve known for years that men are discriminated against in STEM. Here’s the proof.
